EPCS Enrollment at UMMC Downtown

As you may know, the Medical System will be implementing Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances as mandated by the Federal DEA. Please review the attached for background on this initiative. Enrollment for EPCS (Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances) at UMMC Downtown starts Thursday, November 7.

In order to prescribe electronically at UMMS (including all outpatient areas), all prescribers will need to be authorized to do so within EPIC.

  • This involves the following:
    The provider must authenticate the prescription using 2 of the following 3 factors:
    • Something only the provider knows, such as a password
    • Something the provider is, such as fingerprint biometrics
    • Something the provider has, such as a one-time password token, which is separate from the device that the provider is using to prescribe (obtained on your smartphone)

To do this, all prescribers need to be enrolled in Imprivata, which will requires in-person identity-proofing by authorized person

WHERE: Medical Staff Services, 110 S. Paca Street, 8th Floor.

What's involved?


  1. Download Imprivata from the App or Google Play Store onto your smartphone. (Android 7 or later, or iOS11 or later required)
  2. Bring a government-issued Photo ID (Driver's License or Passport)
  3. If you are approved for Suboxone prescribing, confirm that the Medical Staff Office has this information.

Enrollment of each prescriber will take about 5 minutes.

*Our FPI Partners will also be offering additional enrollment opportunities at various practice/site locations.
